Real Name: Scott Summers.
Occupation: College student, adventurer.
Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no criminal record.
Identity: Secret.
Other Aliases: None.
Place of Birth: Anchorage, Alaska.
Marital Status: Single.
Known Relatives: Christopher (father, deceased), Katherine Anne (mother, deceased), Alexander (alias Havok, brother), Philip (grandfather), Deborah (grandmother).
Group Affiliation: X-Men.
Base of Operations: New York City.
History: Scott Summers was the oldest of two sons of Christopher Summers, an Air Force major and test pilot, and his wife Katherine Anne. When Scott was still a pre-teen, his father flew himself, Scott, Katherine Anne, and Scott's brother Alex back from an island vacation in his vintage private plane. While flying over Nebraska, the plane apparently suffered some engine damage and was going to be destroyed. Scott's memories are unclear as to what happened next, as he woke up a year later in an orphanage in Omaha, Nebraska.

According to the people he spoke to at the orphanage, Scott and Alex had apparently been pushed from the plane with a single parachute. Both brothers had suffered injuries, since their overburdened parachute had been unable to fully slow their fall. No sign of his parents' bodies were found among the wreckage of the plane.

Scott had suffered some brain damage during the fall, but this brain damage apparently did not affect him in any way. The doctors attributed his missing memories to this brain damage. Alex, too, suffered a case of mild amnesia regarding what had happened, despite not having similar brain damage; the doctors theorized that he was subconsciously repressing the traumatic memory.

Scott and Alex remained at the orphanage for some time, until their grandparents, who lived in the Alaskan panhandle, arranged to gain custody over the boys. While in his mid-teens, Scott began to develop severe headaches and eyestrain. Scott's grandparents took him to see an eye specialist in Juneau, Alaska. Through trial and error, the optometrist discovered that eyeglasses with lenses made of ruby quartz, a kind of glass with a red impurity, seemed to alleviate the boy's vision problems. The doctor suspected that Scott was a mutant and informed his grandparents of this.

Scott and Alex were tossing a football around when Scott's powers first manifested themselves. Alex had thrown the football too far, and Scott fell trying to catch it, causing his glasses to come off. Scott and Alex were surprised to see a ruby beam of energy come from Scott's eyes and punch a hole through the hangar where his grandfather stored his plane; thankfully, the plane was on the runway at the time. Scott closed his eyes, and Alex found his glasses for him.

Philip and Deborah Summers had a long talk with Scott and Alex at that point. Scott agreed to be sent to the recently announced Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters, a school which openly advertised itself as a school for mutants. Scott was one of the first class of students to attend. Alex followed a few years later when his powers manifested (see Xavier, Professor Charles).

Recently, Scott has graduated from Xavier's. He is currently attending Empire State University in Manhattan, and has joined several other Xavier Institute graduates in forming the first all-mutant hero team, the X-Men (see X-Men).
